Properties of avocado oil for hair

Avocado oil for hair is obtained during the process of cold pressing of ripe fruits. Thanks to this technology, the richest set of vitamins (A and E, PP and K, B1-B2 and D), the minerals and fatty acids in the fruits themselves do not collapse, but remain in the oil. Also, it contains just a record amount of plant hormones (phytosterols), which in all respects improve the scalp and hairline. And, finally, scientists have proved that some of the properties of this oil are almost identical to those of natural subcutaneous fat cells, so it can penetrate hair follicles, restoring their natural strength and structure from within.
